Tailored forging tools by Laser Metal Depsition (BFS 1117-14,TP1)

Project Status: finished


The aim of the research project is the qualification of Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) for tool manufacturing of cold and hot forging tools. The investigations are mainly on a parameter study for the reproducible processing of tool steel with the laser as well as on mechanical properties of additive manufactured structures. On the basis of these investigations interactions between process parameters and produced structure as well as the strength of the specimens will be analyzed. By means of FE-simulation by using the analyzed mechanical properties tools with additive applied forming elements will be designed. For the validation these tools will be tested in mass production conditions at the project partners from the industry.
